Knife peelers for root vegetables

Friday, 28 August, 2009 | Supplied by: Reactive Engineering Pty Ltd


Sormac MS knife peelers are suitable for continuous peeling of pre-washed or pre-peeled root products, like potatoes, red beet and celeriac.

In the smaller model MS-Combi, potatoes which have not been pre-peeled can be peeled as normal. The drum has several pre-peeling plates which replicate the effect of pre-peeling.

The machine is constructed in a frame, with a peeling drum and an auger. Separate electro motors are provided for the drive of the peeling drum and the auger.

On all sides the peeling drum is equipped with knife plates and is driven on both sides by means of V-belts by a separate electro motor. In the peeling drum the auger transports the product forward.

The machine is equipped with a water pipe with spray nozzles. On the circumference of the conveying auger are spray openings, which make wet peeling possible. The peeling waste is transported away via the waste valve at the underside.

The peeling drum is provided with removable cleaning panels, so that it is easy to clean the inside of the drum and the conveying auger.

The final peeling quality is equal in every respect to the larger knife peeler only with half the capacity.

The capacity of the MS-1T is determined by the size and quality of the product to be peeled and is approx 1.0-1.5 t/h (raw product), depending on the desired peeling waste percentage. The capacity of the MS-mini and MS-Combi are about half this. For re-peeling of steam-peeled potatoes, the capacity is approximately triple.
